BROOKLYN - Two teenagers hurt in a propane explosion in a Marine Park home are now under arrest.

According to police, 19-year-old Antony Bambale, who lives in the home off Marine Parkway, and his girlfriend, 17-year-old Gabriella Katanov, are facing charges for reckless endangerment, criminal possession of marijuana and criminal use of drug paraphernalia.

The teens were rushed to Staten Island University Hospital with burns following the explosion at around 2 a.m. on Tuesday.

Investigators say they found marijuana in a tub along with chemicals, and that some kind of spark near the fume buildup of the drug most likely caused the explosion.

The investigation remains ongoing.
